On Being Tumblr

On Being Tumblr

On Being with Krista Tippett is a public radio project delving into the human side of news stories + issues. Curated + edited by senior editor Trent Gilliss.

We publish guest contributions. We edit long; we scrapbook. We do big ideas + deep meaning. We answer questions.

We've even won a couple of Webbys + a Peabody Award.

I’ve been quietly humming this achingly beautiful rendition of the German love song Lili Marleen today. With gentleness and grace, it captures that sweet sorrow of one scared and lonely man reaching out to another.
